FRESH GIRL

Jaira Placide, Author . Dell/Laurel-Leaf $5.50 (216p) ISBN 978-0-440-23764-8

A 14-year-old seems quite naïve to the kids at her U.S. school, but while living in Haiti during the 1991 coup, she experienced a life-changing event too horrific and personal to share with anyone. "The heroine's growing courage to voice her unspeakable truth sustains the novel," wrote PW . Ages 12-up. (Aug.)
